News Cafe Book Collections - A Cure for What Ails You: Dr. Feelgood's Quick Fix Elixir

A Cure for What Ails You: Dr. Feelgood's Quick Fix Elixir


September - October 2017


Curated by Ola Radeckaand Kaitlin Kehnemuyi

Designed by Renata Gaui and Angela Perrone


In this new Cafe Collection we aim to explore American healthcare. With the current push to change America’s healthcare system, the factions/fractions of issues contained in this topic are being exposed. Is healthcare a right or a privilege? Understanding the complexities, contradictions, and iniquities is vital. Throw in some classism, racism, sexism, stigma, and a morally questionable history, it makes for a great family dinner conversation!
